New Balance 992


New Balance 992, an anniversary sneaker with huge potential.

The first thing you might think when you see the New Balance 992 is that it's straight out of the manufacturer's archives. This is both true and false. The NB 992 is indeed inspired by the iconic 99X sneakers, a collection that started in 1982 with the legendary NB 990. But unlike the latter and the numerous evolutions that followed it, first on the feet of runners and then on the feet of streetwear fans, the 992 was not born during the golden age of running but in 2006, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Boston-based brand. If its design is not contemporary, its creation is relatively recent.

But that's not the point. What matters most about the New Balance 992 is not its history but its aesthetics and comfort.

The New Balance 992 has a typical line of the most beautiful retro-running sneakers of the American firm, with a combination of mesh and suede leather that is declined on Kikikickz in different color combinations generally very sober. As for the branding, we find the inscription ''992'' on the back of each outer panel and especially the famous ''N'' of New Balance on the quarter panel. The NB 992 has the double particularity to be equipped with a thick sole equipped with SBS ABZORB technology, for a soft and durable cushioning, and to be designed in the United States. This makes it a high-end sneaker, almost luxurious.

Thanks to these many assets, the 2006 model has quickly become a classic that brands such as Levi's have recently revisited in beautiful collaborations. The Levi's x New Balance 992 ''Grey'' is waiting for you in due form on the shop, alongside other collector's versions for men and women. Notice to the most demanding collectors!
